Kids Sing for Change Obama Video

by at . Comments
sing for change obama

A "grassroots" music video produced by a group calling themselves "Sing for Change," which shows 22 children singing praises to Barack Obama is leaving many people scratching their heads.

“We’re gonna spread happiness! We’re gonna spread freeeeeeedom! Obama…” sings a young girl.

The video, which was not produced by the Obama campaign, "chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon," according to the YouTube description, "when 22 children, ages 5-12, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing."

I found the video quite disturbing, and I find I am not alone in my assessment.

From AOL:

 ... it is eerie. What on earth are children doing praying to a political candidate? I'm not sure what bothers me most: Is it their glassy-eyed stares? Is it their Children of the Corn-fed good looks? Their hypnotized vibrato-less tones?

From The Washington Post:
 Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

It is possible to criticize one side without endorsing the other, right?

Just to keep things in perspective, take a glance at this vision of our future in Obamaland. All those who find Christian camps terrifying, brace yourselves.


From The Anchoress:
 It creeped me out in 2000 when people stood on a streetcorner handing out lyrics and singing songs about how Hillary Clinton was “a human statue of liberty…” who would solve all the world’s problems.

It creeps me out even more to see children exploited - to serenade and “lighten the community” - about Dear Leader Obama, and the glorious “we” who are going to spread “happiness.” Or, more accurately, the glorious “they” who will spread happiness - partly, it seems, through control of media.

Because “spreading happiness,” apparently, is the role of government. Not to protect the shores, build the infrastructure and get out of the way, but to make us “happy.”

This has more than a little whiff of Havana and Moscow about it, sorry.


From Hot Air:


Their music? No, the music came from the people who wanted to indoctrinate these children, and many others, in the faith of the New Messiah.



From Wizbang:


These kids are already being taught to worship Obama as if he were some kind of god. That's what kids in North Korea, Cuba, Saddam Hussein's old Iraq, and other totalitarian regimes were taught to do as well. The purpose is if they grow up seeing their leaders as god-like they're less likely to rise up against them.



From Pajamas Media:

Watching this video has disturbed me more than almost anything I have seen in recent years.  It is the kind of exploitation of children that reminds me of Young Pioneer Camps I saw when visiting the Soviet Union in the Eighties.

WE'RE GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD

We're gonna spread happiness
We're gonna spread freedom
Obama's gonna change it
Obama's gonna lead 'em

We're gonna change it
And rearrange it
We're gonna change the world.

SING FOR CHANGE
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Now's the moment, lift each voice to sing
Sing with all your heart!
For our children, for our families,
Nations all joined as one.
Sing for joy and sing abundant peace,
Courage, justice, hope!
Sing together, hold each precious hand,
Lifting each other up;
Sing for vision, sing for unity,
Lifting our hearts to Sing!

YES WE CAN
Music and lyrics by Kathy Sawada

Yes we can
Lift each other up
In peace, in love, in hope
Change! Change!

I didn't have a chance to see the video before it was taken off-line.
I have plenty of experience with near-brainwashed Christian camp kids, and I'm living in the former GDR, so I get that critique.
I also know, however, that my 6-yr-old is ecstatic that Obama might win this thing--far beyond anything I've expressed to him. The other night he saw a clip of a campaign rally in Canton Ohio. The phrase he picked up from it, and kept repeating, was 'we're going to change the world'. He said repeatedly 'We are going to change the world, aren't we mama?' His oversimplified approach, and probably that of the kids is the video, stems from his AGE and MATURITY level, not from being force-fed propaganda.

The children are great,so much better than hearing the slash and burn politics of McCain /Palin. It is so refreshing. Much better than these mean spiritedChristians on the right.

I WILL HAVE TO AGREE, THIS IS TOO CLOSE TO HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF. THE PRESENT GENERATIONS DO NOT REALLY KNOW OF THE ATROSITIES THAT WERE COMMITED DURNING WORLD WAR 2. THERE ARE NOT MANY PEOPLE LET WHO CAN CARRY FORWARD THE TRUE MESSAGE. I AM SO TIRED OF OUR GOVERNMENT NOT SUPPORTING THE GOSPEL . WE AS A NATION NEED TO RISE UP IN ANGERN AND STOP LETTING OUR GOVERNMENT GIVE TO US AND TAKE BACK OUR FREEDOMS THAT OUR FATHERS OF THIS COUNTRY WROTE LONG AGO............ENGLAND SAYS GOD SAVE THE KING. I SAY "GOD SAVE THIS NATION"

I also think when it says "Nations as One" that pretty well tells the whole story. I really do not want to live in the North American Republic. Makes me sick.

Hey Mike, I WAS a democrat until Obama is the candidate, but I have news for you--I also believe in God and so do alot of other Democrats.

Re: John, your theory that this was put on by the GOP is funny....It was exposed already that Obama was fully aware of it, as a matter of fact it's been linked to one of his guy's on the campaign...though now he denies it...Surprise, Surprise.... It was on his official site for awhile, prior to it catching fire to the majority of thinking people who see's this for what it is.....After which, the official Obama site took it down.

Not ONE line in the lyrics "prays" to Obama like a new "god" -- All of the objections come from a whole lot of well organized fear mongering RACIST thugs, who cannot stand the thought of a Black Man, sitting in the Oval Office... These kids singing is refreshing!! And from all indications, it looks like some sort of youth group... with parental sponsorship... on a SUNDAY AFTERNOON of all things!! Some of the Thugs posting against this have attempted to claim that it was done in a public school... more likely a community center of some sort... HATE SPEECH against children... how American of you jokers!!

"Sarah Palin is way more disturbing" When I see a bunch of gradeschoolers singing the praises of Sarah Palin and how she's gonna change the world, with proud parents beaming down on them, and SARAH! posters on the walls, and various articles of Sarah-inspired clothing, I'll agree. This gives me the creeps.

It's a Swift boat style 527 snipe, produced by the GOP to make Obama look creepy. That's the kind of 'values' the 'conservatives' have these days.
